evacuations in the past 14 months. the problem is 14 months ago turn hurricane irene, that just perhapses, it does not do the damage everybody predicted. a lot of people that evacuated suffered more with the evacuation centers than those who stayed behind. everybody was worried that people would say, that's the lesson they learned, they're going to stay behind this time. we see a lot of people sticking around. couple of bars are open, they're having hurricane parties. everything isn't so bad right now, but the partyings going to be turning a lot of danger real soon if everybody sticks around tonight. there's no way in or out now. the main highways into this town are now shut down. and police are now using emergency vehicles, four wheel drives, they can't use police cars to get around. and a lot of these veteran officers are telling me if they drive around they're seeing streets flooded they've never seen, even big puddles on and this again, long before the worst of this stuff hits here in new jersey. tony, allison. >> steve, that is extraordinary. as you said, great concern because the wo
hurricane irene, we achieved a 98% evacuation rate. but for whatever reason, this time, we haven't reached that number yet. we think we're somewhere having evacuated several thousand people. but we still have too many people in atlantic city. that creates a very uncomfortable situation for all of our emergency responders and officials are still trying to do the best we can to get people out of harm's way. >> mayor, ali velshi is on the streets of atlantic city. right now, the winds are obviously very gusty. ali, you have a question you'd like to ask the mayor. >> reporter: yes, i do, mayor. and the important thing is by looking at atlantic city, people can look at this and say, this might happen in my community. if you're still not evacuated, what do you do? i know people are driving around. they can get out in their car but it's gusty and dangerous. should people leave and go to a shelter now or hunker down and stay? >> at this point, i think they would be best served to stay at home and hunker down. i just visited a couple of our shelters. i had a very difficult time getting back to wher
as it comes in, this is a cold wind. this is nothing like irene. irene was tropical, warm, no problem at all. this is actually cold, so not very comfort l, but you wouldn't want to -- comforting, but you wouldn't want to miss this, would you? >> bruce, get back with us. we want you on this side of the ocean, not in the ocean. >>> andrea mccarren has been out all day on river road in bethesda. earlier she had the adventure of the blowing barriers. we'll find out where she is now. venezuelan? >> reporter: derek, we've had reinforcements here now. there's u.s. park police. the barriers have blown over to this side. there's some on the other side of the street. basically park police did the right thing. i think they've probably given up on them and they are planting a police cruiser in the middle of the intersection to prevent people from going down little falls parkway between river road and mass avenue. it is a very different bethesda that we're seeing right now. some of the wind guss have been extraordinary. look up river road now and you -- gust have been extraordinary. look up river road n
in years. that sounds very dramatic, but it isn't so when you think about what irene did to connecticut last year. irene, many people in new york and new jersey rolled their eyes at it and said it wasn't a very big deal. here in connecticut it was a very big deal. here in fairfield there were houses with not just broken windows, houses knocked off foundation and thrown into the water. they expect this to be even worse, the storm surge to be even worse here than it was during irene. so that's the major concern. there's the mandatory evacuations up and down the connecticut coast. the good news is that most people are heeding those evacuation orders. the other big concern is power outages. all the wind they are expecting to get up here, because the wind is going to be very strong up on the northern edge of this storm. the wind will cause a lot of power outages along with that flooding. they expect -- connecticut light and power expect as many as 600,000 people to be without power here in connecticut for days on end. during irene they were without power for days on end as well so everybody
. part of it is because there were so many spectators out here for irene and they don't want that again when you could be dealing with a once if a century sort of storm. look at that break. oh, my gosh. that's what you would see surfers going through, those little tubes. i don't even know the proper terminology for that. i mean, we've just been seeing set after set of incredible waves out here. in terms of what we're seeing like damage, stuff like that, no real huge trees down. no power lines down, at least right here in the boardwalk area. we know we're seeing it up and down more on the bay side again. it's just the story right now is the waves. we've got a good amount of rain. it's definitely blowing in my face. we're getting some good stronger gusts of wind. but sustained winds, they don't feel too bad. it still feels more like a tropical storm than a hurricane. of course that's because hurricane sandy still several hundred miles away from us here. let's just go back to the boardwalk real quick. i'll show you some of the businesses that -- how they're dealing with this storm. you can
the boardwalk here have been boarded up. >> we did it last year for irene and we decided to board it up then. fortunately there was no damage. >> reporter: the evacuation route remains in effect. the time forgetting ready for sandy is just about over. >> this could last several days. we could be without power for awhile. obviously we hope to see a minimum of property damage but there could be a bun: >> gale force winds here and they are expecting to experiencing those to see gale force winds through to wednesday including when the storm makes landfall expected over new jersey but that is close enough here to get a big storm surge. the high tide at 7:55. right now as you saw in the report there, the beach goes back to the stand dunes so it will be interesting to see tomorrow morning how close it gets to downtown which remains evacuated tonight. >>> let's ask him, on the road christian, are you still with us? >> reporter: i am. >> just to ask you, about the cars on the road. only essential cars will be on the road tomorrow morning in delaware. >> reporter: that is an order from the governor.
is the size of the loss? >> it is a major disaster in new jersey. you know i have gone through irene, october snowstorm, the blizzard of 2010. this is by par the worst thing we have gone through. we have 2.4 million people or households without power. we have over 200 state roads closed. we have -- wasn't actually a levee. it was a berm and the berm was overwhelmed by the tidal surge that came up the newark bay. same one affecting new york city. we are in the midst of rescuing hundreds of people in bergen county from their homes. also involved in rescues last night, middlesex county rescuing people from their homes. again, not with river flooding but tidal surge from the bay. so this is -- not even to mention what's happen order the jersey coastline which i think in the long run will be the part of the state that's the most devastated. you saw some of the scenes yesterday from up and down our coast. new jersey obviously this is where it came onshore. i think the state of new jersey took it in the neck worse than any other state. it is going to take as you while to dig o
owners, boarding up and moving out it's a familiar feeling. >> we did it last year for irene. >> yeah in a and we decided to board up then and there was no damage. >> to requestingen the ehave a -- quicken the evacuation, tolls were waved. waived. >> bge sent out a call to get help and crews responded from 10 states and crew and crewmen are here. >> linda so is here where the staging area is. how is it look. >> reporter: it's getting very busy in the last hour we have seen the crews arrive. we are counting 7 school buses all of those buses transporting crews from hotels here to the staging area on dorsey road by the airport. let's show you the huge tent they have set up. in that tent is where the crews are reporting for the morning. so they are getting breakfast and safety briefing and assignments. out of state crews will be matched up with bge crews who work here and they will head out for the day. i just spoke with two guys actually three guys from missouri who have a great attitude about this. you can only imagine how difficult it is to work in these elements with the wind and rain

a lot of water come over the wall right now. again, last year, hurricane irene, we did see a lot of that sea foam and some of the waves breaching. definitely seeing some good action here with the water itself coming over the wall at this point. again, 17th, 16th street along the boardwalk. making aussie little bit nervous here. we'll continue to watch that. the seawall erected over hurricane gloria in 1985 and has not been breached since then. there is also concern about the other side, the bayside of ocean city. so we'll continue to watch all of that and that is the latest here live. back to you. >> hurricane sandy definitely going to test that seawall throughout the next coming days. lauren, thank you so much. >> we'll be right back with more coverage of hurricane in just a moment. this was a booming place. and mitt romney and bain capital turned it in to a junk yard. i was suddenly, 60 years old. i had no health care. mainly i was thinking about my family. how am i going to take care of my family. he promised us the same things he's promising the united states. and he'll give

in new york harbor right now, a half a foot higher than hurricane irene. when the high tide starts to flood in late this afternoon, early this evening, we'll see record-breaking surge hikes. >> does that mean water goes in the subway? >> probably. >> probably. >> i don't know what kind of sandbagging efforts that they're going to be having in place. i mean, since irene, i know they've taken some steps to see if they can get some sort of better protection from subway entrances, but the official forecast is calling for a 10 hfgs to 12-foot storm tide and it only needs to be 10.5 feet to flood the subway. >> jeff, we've seen the pictures. we keep hearing the adjectives colossal, gigantic, to describe it. almost in november, cold in the north. how does a storm like this size form? >> well, it started in the caribbean, which it's always warm enough year around to make hurricanes form. and once it got north of the caribbean it found itself right over the gulf stream, at least over the past day or so, and it was in a very unique spot, right over an axis of the warm gulf stream waters that

, the water level should be somewhere right about here on this marble. with irene, it was about a foot, two feet shorter than this. that's one of the things we'll be watching with the subway system. if the saltwater gets in, there's corrosion, it's a mess. that would be a multi-million dollar disaster. the last time that happened was with dawn. well up the eeriest sound, the wind whipping 20, 30 miles an hour higher than what we're dealing with down here at the surface, there are two cranes attached up there. they've been shaking all day. but it's just a fascinating storm. it's 58 degrees in new york city. yet there's a storm surge coming up, the highest we've ever seen in new york city's recorded history. just an amazing storm, guys. i'm going to go on record, i won't admit it to him, you can tell doug kammerer he did pretty well on this one. >> all right. we'll tell him you said that. bill, i want to ask you this, here in the washington area, most of the local officials told the folks to stay indoors to shelter in place, stay off the streets. and everywhere we go, we see people who are st
